    The large stained glass window is a "Rose" design, and doesn't led itself to a variable height very well. Also, given that houses can only by 4 stories tall, I figured a window that covered 3 of them would be tall enough for most folks. :)

    But I like what you said about a customize-able stained glass window. I'll keep that in mind!

    Yes, the open stairs created some technical issues that required us to create solid versions. We still have the open stair pieces, so we can re-add once we can resolve those issues.

    Haha! Calling me OLD? "...and I'm not old, I'm 37!!" - Python

    Yea, I got a few EA roots. Very proud that those are all UO. But there are two that have bigger roots than me! But as for artists, I'm like Methuselah or something. ;-)

    Thanks for the kind words. We'll keep striving to do our best.

    I totally understand what your saying, and lemme see if I can address some of your points:

    Floors, Roofs, and Foundations:
    Yes, those things would be great- no argument there. The thing is, I have to provide a recommendation of art tasks that Design ultimately relys on to do thier job. This list is simply an evaluation of risk vs reward weighed against available time and resources. Based on that evaluation, we decided to pass on those things at this time. Keep in mind that the Gothic set alone has over 60 pieces- I don't know of any customized housing set that comes close to that.

    The arched doors and doorways I would have loved to do. Only thing is, I felt that arched doorways that were the same scale as the existing doors would just not have the feel that they should unless they could be larger. I hear that your telling me that you'd like to have them anyway?

    I might have to edit this response later because I'm writing it here on my iPod, which is terribly small, so expect edits and autocorrect errors, sorry.

    As for he biffing from Cal, I'm not sure I could have distinguished the biffing you asked for versus the daily biffings I get from him (I can only hope we're interpreting "biffing" in the same way)

    Thanks for the post, and the good points.
